I keep ring and wrist locked in because I know that’s what I’m going to use.
I think the key thing in this is to not take everything at face value, do your due diligence and compare results, find the one that suits you most. Do you want to be the super min/max person and squeeze out every hundred DPS, it’s going to take way longer. Alternatively you could do small tests and use the optimizer around that.
Your set there gets about 2.16m, if you use norgannons at 1000 it gets you about 2.15m and if you lock in bracers + ring, it nets you about 2.2m.
All 3 of those combos are so close together that the optimizer can’t really determine what truly is the “best”. Your play style/skill has FAR more influence then gear will.
Ex. Are you good with Sheath? Can you hit every knife like the simulator does? If not, then you should probably look at Vitaility/Catalyst, since they’re both easier to use.
I lock in bracers and ring, because I’ve done more than enough test to know that they’re the best combo I can use and that’s exactly what the “Customize” feature is there for, you pick what you want to use, either based on play style or your own research.
